    Hi everyone my names Cathie joined yesterday. After watching The Killing Season. I like the fact that you all care so much to help other family's. One day I liked to find out who shot my Cousin in the back. I am a newbie at this but maybe after I get used to the site and stuff maybe I can be a productive person and help others which I have in other ways in my life. Now being disabled and have a lot of time home. God Bless you all and I pray and hopes that everyone can find closure. In whatever their story is.

    Hi everyone! My name is Amy and I'm an IT Project Manager in Western New York. I love competing my former racehorse in eventing, cuddling with my dogs, building beautiful spreadsheets (I never said I was normal), volunteering, and ending the day with a good beer or wine. :D

    I've always been fascinated with true crime - I spent most nights as a teenager falling asleep to Forensic Files, and had no idea why this freaked out my parents. ;) I am an adoptee, and spent the last 6 months web sleuthing my way to figuring out the identity of my biological father. Following the successful conclusion of that endeavor, I felt that joining WS would be a wonderful opportunity to utilize some of the skill set I've been honing for a good cause. I'm planning to familiarize myself with the site and will be perusing the forums to find something to work on, and can't wait to get started.

    Hi, I just joined today to see if this is something I'm interested in doing.

    I'm a Data Scientist for a healthcare technology company in Southern California, and I was asked by our local police to run some analytics for one of their cases. We ended using this analysis to help make an arrest in the case. I had never really thought about doing something like that before (I know others in my field that do it, I just haven't personally thought about it prior to this), and I'm really interested now to see if the same type of idea could be used to help solve others. But I wouldn't really know where to start, as far as specific cases are concerned.

    Sounds like you have a very interesting job, Justin! I hope you find cases you're passionate about and you're able to pursue solving other cases. I think someone in your position can make a big difference.

    I'm new to Websleuths, too. I'm from Utah and I have been interested in and researching John and Jane Doe cases for about 6 years now. I don't work in the field, or a field even remotely related to this interest. However, I'd like to contribute anything I can to discussions on cases and suggestions for who some of these missing folks could be. I have become pretty passionate about helping the "nameless" get their name back.

    Hi I'm new here. Not sure if I'm posting in the right place. I heard about Websleuths on a true crime podcast I started listening to today. It's about the disappearance of Tara Grinstead. Nice to meet everyone.

    Hello Everyone

    I am also not sure that I post in the right place. I am from the Netherlands and got the name of your forum in the program of the LISK killer. I can't go out because I am 18 years in bed now. But I can read maybe I kan help searching internet and so on.

    Hiya Don, I came across this site for the same reason. I was searching for updates on the Malibu Creek Park shootings this summer since my family still spends part of the year around there. Was troubled by the number of other crime incidents (near miss shootings, missing young people, remains found) happening in our back yard. Also surprised that for some reason these things haven't generated alarm or merited more local media attention in a community where putting in a stoplight makes the front page. I'd expect that with the fat budget the tax base generates that the sheriffs department could mount a more professional and thorough investigation into these cases instead of falsely concluding all missing 20 somethings are either mentally ill or on a drug bender. Why aren't they doing more on behalf of these victims and for their families? When even long time residents have no idea these things are happening, how can they expect to find any leads? Interested in knowing what you've found or heard...I didn't expect to be checking this site as much as I have but there really aren't many good sources of information out there. Good luck!

    I am Mingsmom. This is not my first Websleuth encounter. I actually joined years ago to investigate Beth Doe UF168.
